Hord Power

http://www.hordpower.com/index.php?m...roducts_id=197

Mine will be here and back to me in 10 days or so....I hear lots of good stuff about Hord's work on the RC51. Now I will be working on getting a rear shock soon.

Stay tuned as I will report the performance changes once I get these installed and give her a good ride.

Traxxion Dynamics no longer makes the top out spring kit for the RC51, just an FYI to you fine folks.

I will be happier. Rear shock and link will be next on the list too.(Enter salivating LDH...) The engine is after this, I may even buy a spare just for the hell of it. That head porting Hord offers, looks very intriguing.(Especially the before and after numbers) Maybe the aftermarket snorkel and air box to boot.(And those HRC funnels....ooooh aaaahh)

SP2 cams are relatively unobtanium so, this will just have to do.

I will be taking the 'ol girl to see Mr. Hord for the updated dyno tune. I have a custom tune now but that was pre flapper, pair removal and by-pass of the soft rev.(He quoted $100 per hour and two hours since I have all of the mods done already, pretty good price I believe!)

You can tell she needs some help 7000ish rangeWhy I don't know, but it is rich!!!)

can't wait to hear how it comes out. I've heard great things about Hord. You stole my idea though, i think i'm also going to buy a spare motor as a side project to my project and start building it to be aggressive. Already have my stage 2 HRC valvetrain for it. I think this will be way down the road though. I have too much going on with the RC as it is.

Sending you a PM with some info you may be interested in, in regards to some motor work.

You have an affinity for my wallet I see..... Look forward to seeing it.

While you are in Germany, a visit to the Durbahn facility is a MUST!
